The Bishop of the North American Lutheran Church, the Rev. Dr. Dan Selbo, NALC Bishop Emeritus, the Rev. John Bradosky, together with our pastors and people, express our deepest sorrow and condolences to our brothers and sisters in the Roman Catholic Church, upon the death of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI. We offer our prayers for comfort, grace and healing for Pope Francis, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, all bishops, priests and religious, and the more than 1.3 billion Roman Catholic faithful throughout the world.
